Schoenhut

`A wonderful gift for the budding pianist!

Schoenhut's bright 25-key tabletop model is the perfect choice for a toddler's first piano. Encourage your child's musical creativity with a fun and educational musical instrument. My First Piano is an ideal tool for kids developing hand-eye coordination. Chromatically tuned, the lovely chime-like notes are produced by little hammers striking precision-ground, German steel music rods . Schoenhut's patented Learning System, with its play-by-color teaching method, makes playing simple and fun. A removable color strip fits behind the keys to guide small fingers from chord to chord. The chart also works on adult keyboards, since keys on Schoenhut toy pianos are of corresponding width. This teaches children proper "finger stretch" from the very beginning. The accompanying songbook contains a collection of familiar tunes. This Learning System has been specially designed to build a child's confidence and develop basic playing skills.

    Overall, very fun and worth it.

    As soon as it arrived, several of the keys didn't pop back after pressing them down, or two would press at once when you only tried to press one. The instructions that came with it said it might have these problems and to make run your finger up and down the keys and then shake the entire thing to loosen some of the mechanisms. I did that, and it didn't do much of anything.

    It was an easy fix, though. I simply removed the 4 screws from the side that held down the top of the piano. I removed that and the front board with the logo on it. Inside it smelled like metal and spray-paint. The keys are easy to remove individually and fiddle with. I took out the high B and C (which were the two that would strike together) and filed down the sides. The cheap plastic molds Schoenhut uses had little pieces of plastic that stuck out and grabbed the other keys. I filed down the sides of all the keys and this helped the action and made the keys bounce up more consistently. There is still one key that still doesn't come back up smoothly, and I can't figure out why. I continue to fiddle with it now and then to make it better. I am not a piano builder or fixer, this is my first time doing any fixing myself, but it's easy if you know how pianos work. I'd recommend seeing what you can do to fix it before you set up a return, because even Schoenhut knows it'll show up and be a little defective. Their remedies help a little, but not as much as you could probably do yourself.

    I also wrote another review on this right after I got it, saying I would return it. Now I love it and I'm keeping it forever. My future children will probably love it. Also, all my friends think it's hilarious and it's good for jamming with some acoustic guitars under a bridge or something where you can't bring a real piano or plug in a keyboard. Very fun, very portable. Might even buy another in a different color.

    I bought this hoping I could bring it around and jam on it with my friends - something portable and not too loud, in case someone had their little acoustic guitar and wanted to jam in a car or go somewhere this would (ideally) be something I could throw under my arm and run with. The super positive reviews made it seem like it would sound like a real piano(more or less; obviously this won't sound that great) but i hoped it would sound - and work - better than it did. Half of the keys don't pop back up when you press them down. Some don't even make a noise at all. The pamphlet that came with it reccomended lightly running your finger along the keys, then shaking the entire thing gently. I did that, and it fixed a few of them, but a bunch still didn't work.

          Great toy! Sturdy, sound is not too loud and kind of like chimes:) Comes with color coded music book. I LOVE playing the piano and can't wait to teach my granddaughters to play a song on it. Hoping it will inspire one of them to play some day ♪ ♫ ♪

            Great Christmas gift for my 7 month old. This intrigued her so much, it encouraged her to crawl her first distance. She now crawls to it everyday and gets up on her knees to play. We are thrilled with her interest. Great price too!

              A very good kids toy, however they keyboard response out of the box is a bit sluggish, with a one-finger run from top to bottom missing a lot of the notes. The manual suggest adjusting the piano to reduce that, but was hoping it was a bit better "in tune" out of the box.

              Buy this if you want to give a child a true representation of a piano. The keys are full size and the notes are actually the right tones. So many toy pianos have multi colored keys with no sharps or flats. Why give a child something so inaccurate? Yes, this piano is still a toy piano with a toy piano sound, but if a child has some musical appitude (maybe still undiscovered) why not give them a keyboard that is correct so they can begin making the connection in their minds
              between keys and sounds.

                The FP II is exactly what we wanted it to be - a fun outlet for a baby's banging and eventually a learning toy.

                        This piano is a perfect first piano for a child. No, it does not sound like a large piano, but why would it? It is made for a child. You can play songs on it and can tell what they are...sounds like a winner to me. It is sturdy and well constructed. Another winner. All in all, this piano is a great investment in my opinion.
